But for now I'm enjoying watching the rain fall from my armchair with a baby in my lap and another baby snug in his bed for the afternoon. A perfect time to share some of my favorite things from around the web this week.
ONE | this cottage garden is perfect in it's own helter-skelter way. I am aching to add more flowers
and plants to my yard. The bag of wildflower seeds I 'planted' (I used that word lightly, 'dumped'
would be much more fitting) near our front porch flourished beautifully and for that I am thankful.
TWO | I think I need this necklace. I haven't stopped thinking about it since I first pinned it.
THREE | berry crisp. I will be making this and eating it warm from the
oven with a scoop of Tillamook old fashioned vanilla. It will be perfect.
FOUR | I am in love with this family photo, in fact the entire shoot is just breathtaking.
I love the idea of fall photos on an chilly day with each family member thoroughly
bundled up and especially the blanket wrapped around the toddler. It's truly perfect.
FIVE | I told you I've been dreaming about summer camp and camping and
lakes and camp fires and staying up late enough to maybe see the stars. This
adorable little painting just further fuels my little daydreams.
Here is a great blog post about camping with babies.
Parenting 'norms' seem to have changed from when we were kids and I tend to agree with this article that the old norms were probably better.
I made these pancakes earlier this week and they were amazing; we had them for breakfast and then ate the leftovers for dinner too.
